False Domestic Violence Accusations If your future is at risk, your attorney can make all the difference.

Falsely Accused of Domestic Violence?

Few things are as terrifying as falsely being accused of a crime. If someone has accused you of domestic violence, you should carefully plan your next steps to avoid potentially serious and life-changing consequences.

I am Wilson LaFaurie, a New York criminal defense lawyer who handles false domestic violence accusation cases. Please call my law office if you have been charged with domestic violence or if a restraining order has been placed against you.

Falsely Accused of Domestic Violence? Here Are Your Next Steps.

This may come as a surprise to you, but false allegations of domestic violence are not uncommon. During a heated argument, one partner may call the police — even if nothing physical has happened. The police almost always make an arrest when responding to a domestic violence call, often leading to criminal charges. In all too many cases, the alleged victim will refuse to admit that he or she lied to police, a scenario that can lead to serious legal trouble for the accused.

False domestic violence accusations are also often made during the divorce process. Divorce and child custody proceedings can be emotionally charged and highly acrimonious; if a parent feels that he or she may not receive custody of his or her child, he or she sometimes makes the rash decision to accuse the other parent of domestic violence. If the false accusations are not discovered, they could result in the accused parent unjustly losing custody of his or her children.

No matter what circumstances you are involved in, false domestic violence charges require aggressive and immediate action. As a domestic violence defense attorney, I can help craft a strong and compelling case on your behalf. I will work hard to secure evidence that supports your innocence.

Serious Consequences

The consequences for domestic violence vary depending on the circumstances. Accusations of assault or strangulation can lead to years of imprisonment and thousands of dollars in fines. Lesser charges, such as harassment or menacing, are misdemeanors and can be punished with a sentence of up to one year's imprisonment and a fine of up to $5,000.

It is important that you work with a skilled criminal defense attorney who can help you avoid these serious consequences. When you work with my law firm, I will carefully investigate your case and help you develop an effective defense strategy.

A Former New York Prosecutor
